Hotel Marta
Ranked #1 of 47 Zurich B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The breakfast is quite simple, but nice... and it comes with golden eggs! YES! Eggs in golden color... and I love eggs! :)

Free wifi in the room and lobby. Nice clean and comfortable bed. Nothing that I don't like. Consider the cost of living in Switzerland is so expensive... this hotel is one of the better ones I've found which is only 5-10 mins walk to Central Train Station and shopping areas..

Room Tip: Try to choose higher floor and you maybe able to get a nicer view...

Ideally located at the top end of Old Town, thus makes it easy to walk to all the sights, even reasonably close for walking to the shopping strip at Bahnofstrasse. Hotel Marta is a modern boxy minimalist style hotel that looks a bit out of place in an older area of town.

However, after the renovations, everything works well. Our room was smallish (they're all small apparently) but not cramped. All facilities worked fine and free wifi was a treat. There is no mini-bar and a hair dryer needs to be requested at the front desk. There are no tea/coffee facilities but there is a complimentary hot water tea/coffee bag service in the lobby.

Downstairs in the lobby there is a PC with printer available FOC...that was handy for printing off itineraries and online tickets. The included breakfast was the usual continental style and fine.

Staff were fluent in English and also friendly and helpful. All in all, a pleasant stay of 2 nights.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a better view. We were on the 7th floor (highest one).

Hotel Marta, Zurich. Charming, swanky & clean budget hotel with matchbox size rooms. Staying here for the 3rd time. They have renovated the hotel & it's even better now. 24 hrs reception is a big plus. Central location. Free wifi. Simple, but excellent breakfast. Not sure if the hotel falls in "budget" category, considering the room price starts at around CHF.110. But, switzerland is expensive!

spent a very nice weekend staying in this hotel in central zurich. It is expensive but not by zurich standards.The hotel has recently been refurbised and is very well maintained. The rooms are basic but have everything you need if you are only using it as a base. The breakfast choice is limited though the free wifi gets it the thumbs up

Basic, but clean and comfortable Hotel in a great location, next to Zürich Central and only a couple of minutes away from central station. The staff was very friendly, but overall the place felt more like a modern hostel than a 100+ euro/night hotel facility. The exceptionally clean room was under the pitched roof with new furniture and a newly renovated bathroom but a cold and unadorned atmosphere. Breakfast somehow makes it up for this with fresh fruits, cereals and a high, light-flooded breakfast hall. But even for Zurich price levels the hotel seems somehow overpriced.

Marta Hotel is very close to the central station in Zurich , the location is good but the place is rather depressing , Breakfast was terrible the only thing that was nice was the original spiral staircase which was rather interesting ,I honestly believe this Hotel feels like a hospital ,there is only one reason people end up there is because it is located close to the station . If you walk five minutes towards the museum there is a much nicer hotel that has cheaper options and generally feels more happy . The street the Marta sits on is very noisy at night more so in the warmer months .

Room Tip: if you happen to check into the Marta ask for a room at the back
